A Teacher and Trainer by Nature


Dr. Abdul Raziq Kakar had been delivering pieces of training to the livestock keepers in a far-flung region for sustainable but efficient livestock production and other valuable practices to ensure food security, livelihood, and fetch markets for niche products. He’s the author of the Indigenous Livestock Breeds, Livestock Production Systems, and Indigenous Knowledge of the Tribal People in Balochistan Province, Cholistan, and the Thar Desert. Dr. Raziq had been traveling with the Afghan nomads (Kochis) to document their livestock genetic resources, indigenous knowledge (treatment and husbandry), and the lifestyle of the pastoral people.
In recent years, Dr. Raziq delivered many (physical & online) lectures/training sessions globally. He is the ToT of the LEGS program and verified international livestock expert by the IFAD and UN FAO. Dr. Raziq is advocating and promoting the camel as a sustainable dairy animal through consultancies and training.

The time has reached to redefine the role of native livestock breeds, especially the long-walking livestock, spreading the seeds, and revitalizing the soil fertility and nature.
